KOTA BHARU, Kelantan: A weird "spiritual fire" broke out in a residential house at Jalan Pantai Cahaya Bulan, Kampung Barembang, Kota Bharu recently.

More than ten ulamas failed to put out the "fire" by way of reciting the Koran verses, and incidents of spontaneous fires burning the clothes continue to take place for more than twenty times thereafter.

The female owner of the house, Zainab Sulaiman, 73, said even though the incidence of "spiritual fires" had somewhat slowed down after the ulamas offered the prayers, they still came for about four times.

The mysterious phenomenon appeared again during day time for more than twenty times, five of which occurring when Sin Chew Daily conducted the interview there.

Zainab Sulaiman complained that her family had run out of idea how to subdue the "fires" other than throwing away the burnt clothes.

"We are going to have no more clothes to wear. What should we do now?" she asked.

Unable to go to school

The "spiritual fires" have burned the clothes, spoiled the food, turned on the gas cooker and burned the new school uniforms and veils of Zainab's two granddaughters, 11-year-old Nur Fartili and 13-year-old Wan Nurfatifa, making them unable to go to school.

The incidents have lasted for 13 days now and many "supreme masters" have been consulted but to no avail.

Zainab could hardly understand why such strange phenomenon could take place in her house, which was built on the land belonging to the Islamic Affairs Bureau, as she had been living peacefully there for more than three decades.

She is worried the "spiritual fires" would trigger real fires that would cause damages to her house and her neighbours'. As a result, she has been staying home for 13 days because she is afraid the disastrous event could happen the moment she steps out of her house. (Translated by LIM LIY EE/Sin Chew Daily)
